$10,000 reward offered for information on hit and run


The family of Kimberly Powell, a 23-year-old hit-and-run victim who died last month after being struck while she was jogging near Dodson, is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a suspect in the case.

Based on a passenger-side mirror found at the scene, investigators have determined that the suspect was driving a car - not a truck or SUV - and believe that there may be some damage to the upper-right portion of the windshield and the roof of the vehicle.

Although the Multnomah County Sheriff's office continues to get tips about vehicles missing mirrors, they have very little information in the case, said Lt. Jason Gates, sheriff's office spokesman.

A benefit concert held last weekend raised more than $2,000, but additional donations are needed to help offset the costs to the family.

Donations to the Justice for Kimberly Powell Fund can be sent to P.O. Box 2091, Oregon City, 97045.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to the call the sheriff's office at 503-261-2810.
